      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Hi, I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows what's wrong with my ear or can help me.

      It started around 5 weeks ago, I had a serious allergy attack (sneezing severely, etc) and after that my hearing went funny, like almost as if everyone was a robot. My ears were constantly blocked and I put this purely down to my allergies.

      About a week later, I went round a friends house then when I got back to go to bed I had this sensation. It was this feeling of fullness in my this tickling buzz that felt as if my ear drum is twitching. I noticed that by putting my finger in my ear it completely stopped even the sensation. It's not so much a noise but a feeling. It's not continuous, it's intermittent at different volumes , now it is broken up - sometimes it worse than others and it's not continuous or pulsing it's random. Like a fly in my head or darthvader randomly waving a light saber around. It responds to movement (me moving my head or neck around) I have these sudden dizzy spells that make me feel like I'm drunk! I can always feel it tingling and rumbling and then it just comes suddleny. Other noises trigger it like if my mum shuts a window downstairs or something thuds it's as if I can feel the vibrations of the noise inside my ear. I thought it was my eardrum twitching or something. It's worse in the mornings and I constantly feel like I need to pop that ear, it's more difficult to pop and when I do it still feels full. I get this twinging pain sometimes, and when I bend over or move suddenly it's as if there is this WOOOSHING air sensation in it like there's pressure being released. It itches and it's wet sometimes. I've been to see ent and he said that he can see my nose is allergic but my ear seems fine and to wait another few weeks. I'm not sleeping or eating, I can't be creative and I feel suicidle like there is no end. Please can someone help me? Thanks

      Noise / T worsened with antiobiotics
      I would get a second opinion from a different ENT and maybe try to see one who just does ears.

      Welcome to the forum. Your reaction to the new T, including suicide ideations, is normal and it happens to lots of members. When the brain feels like it is stuck with no way out, it just sends this crazy idea out as a way of escape. But T is not an end game. It is a lot of irritation and fear initially. It is unpredictable at best and it can morph into different symptoms initially while the ears are quite unsettled, like having ear fullness, pain, feeling pressured, liquid in the ear drum, having different tones, jumping ears, etc., etc. Because of that it scares its victim to think that T is a mortal threat while it is not. It can be masked, distracted, or habituated over time. Here is my success story to illustrate the journey from suffering to recovery. I have ultra high pitch T and severe H plus relentless panic attacks. I thought my future, if there is one, would be doomed and unlivable. But today I live a normal and absolutely enjoyable life. Don't think ahead too much. One day at a time. You will get better. Read the success stories and learn from others how to get better. Take care. God bless.
